Abstract

Many new technologies from different area are employed in enhancing the safety of ships. This paper proposes using recent ubiquitous technology in order to enhance ship safety. Ubiquitous technology can also provide valuable addition to the ship's service as well as high quality of life to crews and passengers. In this paper, Zigbee communication performance in ship environment is tested in resembling environment and under ship operation condition. Based on the performance of Zigbee communication, a sensor network configuration using Zigbee and PLC (Power Line Communication) is proposed and tested during ship operation. Two application of ubiquitous technology to ship is introduced as well.
